Hvorfor det er så viktig å sette seg mål

Uten mål kommer man ingen sted…SURPRISE!!! 😉

Det er som å sette seg inn i bilen og ikke vite hvor man skal kjøre – da vil du kjøre for alltid… Eller, nesten enda verre: du vil ende opp på et random sted i det bilen går tom for bensin (hehe, just been there, done that..)

Sånn er det med andre ting også: med livet, jobb, skole, ferier, hva du ønsker å gjøre, hva du ønsker å oppnå og hvem du ønsker å være. Hvordan forventer du å komme noe sted om du ikke selv veit hvor du vil??

Jeg har vell egentlig alltid satt noen mål, sånn som de fleste, men starta egentlig for første gang å skjønne hvor viktig det faktisk er da jeg var ferdig på skolen. Da var liksom de karakter målene over: det å nå et konkret snitt for å komme inn der jeg ville på vgs, eller da jeg først starta å jobbe: mål om å spare nok penger for å dra på syden ferie sommeren etter.
Etter vgs, og det obligatoriske som bare alle gjøre, så ble alt liksom mye friere, og målet ble neste automatisk bare ”det vanlige” – ingen som ba meg om å sette mål utifra mine drømmer og hva jeg egentlig ønska. Nå handla det om å få utdanning, finne jobb, kjøpe hus, bil, hytte osv. Ingenting i veien med det – men, det er jo så mye mer man kan gjøre, man må bare sette mål å være konkret på hva man vil!!

Hvilket liv vil du egentlig ha? Hvordan skal hverdagene dine se ut? Ukene dine? Året ditt?
Jeg hadde aldri tenkt på å sette så konkrete mål ifht livet mitt. Føltes litt som at livet bare kom, og ble som det ble, bare go with the flow, liksom. Og det gjør det – om du ikke setter mål og bestemmer deg for hva du skal gjøre og ha 😉

Ved flere tilfeldigheter (hvis du tror på tilfeldigheter) så ble jeg mer og mer oppmerksom, og lærte mer og mer om det å sette EGNE mål. Og har blitt utrolig klar over dette og konkret! Hvorfor??
Fordi jeg gang på gang ser at det fungerer, det er bare snakk om tid.

Fikk bare lyst å dele dette akkurat nå, fordi jeg akkurat har fått ut fingern, og gjort noe som har stått på lista mi i flere år: Starte å hoppe fallskjerm, og få fallskjerm lisens!
Jeg er noen få hopp unna å ha det i boks, og jeg bare elsker det!! Har vært så utrolig kult, utfordrende og masse nytt å lære. Pushe grenser og bevise for meg selv at jeg kan!

Nå er drømmen er å ta med hoppinga inn i den livsstilen jeg allerede har, som også starta som et mål for 6-7 år siden: kunne jobbe og reise! Nå er det: jobbe, reise og HOPPE!!

Så sett mål!! Vit hva du vil ha, vær konkret, sett dato og tid på målet ditt. Tro på det, tro på at DU kan gjøre det, bestem deg – ha en plan på hvordan – og det er bare snakk om tid før du er der!!

Ingen mål er urealistiske, det er TIDEN for å nå målet som er urealistisk 😉 – Berit

Throwback…

…2014, just found this pic on my old phone! I had just moved back to Australia, and was finally reunited with my mama Alison Corrigan ! ❤️ I had just quit my last 9-5 JOB – when I walked out that door, I closed it, and promised myself that I will never be employed by anyone else again!?
3 years later, looking back at this picture: I was so happy! But also, I was scared, I doubted… what if things didn’t work out?? What if, what if… Grateful I decided to trust myself, that I decided to make it work! To make it happen! grateful I took the chance and grateful for those of you who believed in me, before I did. Thank you ❤️

“If you can believe it, the mind can achieve it”..your mind is the only limitation you’ve got! ?? Happy weekend peeps

Excuses or Results??

excusesTo Succeed is a choice – you can have results or Excuses – you can’t have both;)! What do you choose ??


The scariest part when it comes to excuses (my own experience) is that they sound SO LOGICAL!! You make excuses so you can “justify” for yourself why it’s ok not to take action, or why it’s ok not to leave your comfort zone to go after what you want – because, it’s much easier to just be right where you are. It’s safe. It’s comfortable… and with a “good excuse”, you’re excused too; P hehe, this is SCARY !!!!! DO NOT GET LOST HERE! TAKE ACTION! GO FOR RESULTS so you can reach your goals and dreams – you’re going to feel much better tomorrow !!! <3

Be very specific of what you want…

Be very specific and accurate about what you want – how you want your life to be, and look like.

Believe it or not, but it is actually up to YOU to decide. If you are not specific about what you want, you will actually end up with the “left-overs”, with something random, that no one else asked for.

Be absolutely clear when you define your goals – if you don’t know what you want, how can you expect to achieve it?

When opportunity knocks…

..say yes!

I came across this quote the other day:
“If somebody offers you an amazing opportunity but you’re not sure you can do it – say yes, and learn how to do it later”

And I just had to share it, as the loudest voices I had in my head when I desided whether or not to start my own business was: but, I don’t know how? Can I do it?
I was so close to back out just because of these stupid thoughts! I don’t even want to think about where I would have been today if I did!

So, if you are offered an awesome opportunity, look at it as starting a degree in School: you can’t know everything the first day, you have to learn! And as you learn about the business, you will find a way on how to do it aswell. With the right people, team and support – there will be no problem! Just trust that, say YES and get started! – Berit13887035_10154414337684066_1350713704204830740_n

Two things you should expect, and accept in life

Whatever you do in life, there are two things you should expect. And the sooner you accept that you will have to face these two things, the easier it will be for you to get through it.

1) CHALLENGES
Yes. The first thing is challenges. I think the reason life is “so hard” for some people, is because they expect life to be easy. So when they meet a challenge they are SO SURPRISED, and it knocks them down. If you think it will be easy, that you will not meet any obsticals or challenges – it will soak up every time something “get’s in the way.”
If what you do is important for you, just be prepared for challenges. Just accept that you will meet them, and that you will have to leave your Comfortzone.
Change your mindset, and start to enjoy and appreciate challenges when you meet them. Enjoy the feeling of finding solutions, and love when you get to prove yourself that you can do it! That you can face anything you meet, and get out of it with more experience then you had before! Enjoy being uncomfortable by knowing it makes you grow! And when you’re in the shit – just learn from it, rather than to feel negative about it.
Everyone feels fear and discomfort in new situations. The difference with humans is that some knows fear is just an illution, and that they get pass it just by staying in it, and by pushing their limits  – while others let fear Controll them and decide not to grow.
And you know what? Nothing worth having comes easy! So be ok with challenges, and let them create your new comfortzone. You can not get anywhere without them!
image2) FAILURE
Just know and accept that you will fail. Know it’s normal. And you will do it many times. You will look stupid, and people will probably laugh at you. Do you think anyone with success just walked right up to where they are today? Nope, They didn’t … Everyone have their story, and you have to walk yours!
You have to face failure to be successful in whatever it is you want to accomplish –  you must fail to understand, to learn how to do it, how it works and to get better at it!
The only real failure you can make, is to continue doing over again what didn’t work. When you fail, write down what worked, and what didn’t. Write down what you did that was good, and where it went wrong – And next time, you are prepared and can use your experience to handle similar situations better.

Accept this, be grateful for every challenge you meet, for every “failure” you go through – learn from all of them, grow with them – and the journey towards your goal will be POSITIVE & FUN! – Berit

Mind your own business

It’s very easy, in life in general, to get the habit of always meaning something about what others are doing, and how they are doing it. If you’re one of those who are always sticking your nose into others businesses, you should become aware of this, and stop it. The reason is: There’s a big chance that this habit will destroy you, the way you look at yourself and your potential in life… Why?
– You start to compare youself with others.
– You start to compete with others.
– You start to worry about others problems.
– You start to judge and talk about others.
– You loose focus on your own business, on what YOU’RE doing and what you already have.

Why you should stop doing this, and how to turn it in to something positive
– First of all, when you compare yourself and where you are in life with others, it will make you feel like shit. Why? You will most likely compare you with someone you look up to, your idol, and compare your beginning to their middle… You forget the fact that they have once been where you are today, and it’s just the matter of time before you get there aswell. When you forget this fact, you will feel that you’re so far from where you want to be, and that you’re failing. So, just stop this NOW and instead, start to see the progress in you by comparing yourself with where YOU was one week ago, one month ago, one year ago! – and remember to enjoy the journey while working towards your goals !
– To be competitive is one thing, another thing is when you’re always trying to compete against others. It will bring you bitterness, negative feelings and you will start to wish for other people to fail. People really need to realise that there is more then enough out there for EVERYONE. You don’t have to compete, become better, or replace anyone to win! The only one you should ever compete with is yourself, to become a better version of you.
– About worrying: the best is ofcourse not to worry at all! Most of the things we worry about will NEVER happend, so worrying is a waste of energy. But, if you end up worrying, atleast spend that time and energy on YOU. What’s the point of worrying about what others are upto, and their problems?? It will only bring you one thing: STRESS! Unless someone pays you to worry for them, I suggest that you deside to stop it, and put your energy into something productive instead.
– I like this quote “Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people.” Stop discussing others! It won’t lead to anything positive, and it’s a waste of time as no one cares about your opinion anyway.. If your life is that boring that you can’t find anything else to talk about then other people – find a hobby! Get up to something! Create your own life! So when you meet your friends you can share experiences and stuff you’ve been doing, instead of talking behind peoples back..
– ..And, just stop judging. There is a story behind every person and happening that you know nothing about. Remember “The rumors you hear about me, are as true as the ones I hear about you.”
– When you’re so interested and focused on what others are doing, it’s very easy to loose focus on your life, and to forget what you already have. You watch what THEY HAVE, and the only thing you can think of is that YOU need the same, so you can become as successful and happy as them. Start to look at others as an inspiration instead. Learn from them, pick up ideas and thoughts, and qualities they have that you want to develop and become better at. And always remember to stay focused on YOU. Remember to be grateful for what you already have. Remember how lucky you are, remember all the great people in your life, and remember all the qualities you already have within you.

Live your life, focus on being the best YOU can be. Focus on your progress and the positives in your life. What others are doing – let it be their business.. It will bring you peace, positivity, a better feeling about yourself and better results in whatever it is that you are working towards. – Berit wisdom-quotes-eleanor-roosevelt-quotes-gossip-quotes-Ops2Zz-quote

Why you don’t get support when you’re doing something “different”

After High School I had 1 year working and travelling in Australia – Then I came home to Norway and had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. The only thing I knew was: I don’t want a normal Monday-Friday job, and I don’t want to go back to school..

I came across an online business, and with no idea HOW I was going to do it, I had a stomach feeling that it was right for me – so I got started. The hardest thing for me, when I started to tell people around me about my ideas and plans, was that most of the people I thought would support me, didn’t. I remember I felt so disappointed and sad…

After years, going against the “normal”, I’m totally fine with not getting support from everyone around me. Why?

I have found that the reason they don’t act supportive is not because they don’t care, or are bad people. It’s not because they don’t believe in me. And It’s not because they don’t want me to succeed, or because they try to “destroy” my dreams and plans..

It’s because they don’t fully understand. And that is nothing for me or you to be upset about.

People that loves you, and that don’t fully understand why you are doing what you are doing – are just showing that they care by telling you they are concerned. Take this as a good thing instead of being disappointed, and know that you don’t need anyones support to get where you want to be in life :)

Believe in yourself and go for it!
(And know that they will all come back and support you when you succeed ;)) – Berit

Back to KL

Back to KL after having a lot of fun in Thailand for Easter. Thailand has been amazing and I have absolutely found my favourite Island there – I’ll share it with you later!
On top of the beautiful beaches, sun, great food and culture, I Met up with a lot of friends from Norway that I havn’t seen for many years!

Kuala Lumpur is ok, but really, nothing special. Really hot, humid and no wind – and not really a lot to do. There are a lot of other places I would visit before going to KL if I had to choose. My reason for being here (AGAIN, actually the third time this year) is just to see a few friends, to work and relax a bit before my next destination :)
imageFollow me on snapchat for more updates : beritvengan
imageAnd, before I left Thailand, I did something I should have done for a long time ago – DIVING! Been more then 4 years since my last Dive! The visibility was SHIT, saw nothing and it was cold, haha, but was SO MUCH FUN to dive again! :)
imageWe went out from a place close to Patong Beach, Phuket. It was 2000 bath for 2 dives, 1000 bath for equipment – And on a “normal” day, they say these spots are amazing for diving! Guess we just came on the wrong day…
imageSo whats next? I’m the worst on planning while travelling – I love the freedom I have to take it as I go, so havn’t booked the ticket for my next destination yet – But I know where I’m going, and will update you when I get there  -Berit
